What is The Dance Teacher Summit?

The Dance Teacher Summit was created to bring together like-minded dance teachers who have a passion for the growth and development of dance education.

Teachers travel from all around the world! Above, the Caribbean Ritual Dancers from the Virgin Islands enjoy the cocktail party!
The event is specifically designed for and attended by studio owners, studio teachers, K-12 educators, dance professors and teaching assistants from across the globe. The world renowned faculty for this unique event will combine the expertise of legendary master teachers with the cutting edge styles of today's most influential choreographers.
This 3-day conference, held in New York City, includes dance classes, business and marketing seminars, interactive panel discussions, guest performances, a fashion show, the industry’s leading vendors and more! The Dance Teacher Summit promises to give dance teachers the motivation and inspiration they need to re-energize their passion for the art and the business of teaching dance.
